I know. The question was, if we can teach either the boot loader or the
kernel to drop the ELF debugging sections and just install the
netbsd.gdb all the time.
I bet I am not the only developer to have a "relatively good" kernel
around and one for testing, it is annoying if a bug in the former
appears when the build directory has been updated a few times in between
